Carrie Underwood vs. Kristen Kelly – The Showdown
Much like the storm that rips through her song ‘Blown Away,’ Carrie Underwood is unstoppable. The singer built an early lead during yesterday’s Showdown against Hunter Hayes‘ hit ‘Wanted,’ and after both songs faced off on Taste of Country Nights, she was crowned champion once again. Her new single needs two more wins to be immortalized in the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame.
Today, ‘Blown Away’ will have to get past feisty newcomer Kristen Kelly‘s debut single ‘Ex-Old Man.’ The song from her upcoming debut album rides a catchy chorus and relatable storyline up the country singles charts. Kelly can be seen opening shows for Brad Paisley‘s on his Virtual Reality Tour this summer.

Showdown Rules: The song with the most votes wins, and the winner goes on to face a new challenger in the next Showdown. Vote as much as once per hour. If a song wins five days in a row, it will be retired into the Taste of Country Showdown Hall of Fame to allow for new songs to compete. Some songs will be considered for a second Showdown if voter turnout is healthy in a losing effort.
